During spring break, the Niles North Girls Track and Field team started the outdoor season after an indoor season that started off rocky but ended in an impressive way.  After setting huge records in their indoor season, the girls want to work toward a greater goal to accomplish in their outdoor season. 

The girls are starting to see their potential,” assistant coach Jonda Cherry said. “So our goal is to set more personal records, continue to work hard, and hopefully have some advance to state.”

New participants also want to continue to improve their skills.  “My goal is to progress as an individual mentally and physically throughout this track season,” freshman Josce Jelinek said. “I would like to increase the distance of my jump and cut down my sprint time.” 

The girls continue to practice every morning each week. They do workouts such as running up & down stairs, running in strong weather conditions such as strong winds, and half a mile almost every morning. 

The team looks forward to their next track meet at St. Rita High School where they will compete with the city schools. It’ll be on April 13.
